Well, it’s happening next year. We will see most of the phones featuring an in-display front camera like the Galaxy A8s, the Huawei Nova 4 and the Honor V20 which launched this month. Along with that, the megapixels war has started once again as we are going to see huge camera sensors on the smartphones again. The Nova 4 and the Honor V20 have a 48MP rear camera, and same is going to be the case with most of the phones next year.
Today, the CAD renders of the successor of Motorola P30 (most probably Motorola P40) revealed the design of it, and it looks like Motorola is also going to follow Samsung, Huawei, and Honor.
As always, it’s OnLeaks who posted these CAD-based renders on Twitter. As shown in the image above, the Motorola P40 (the name is not confirmed yet) has an edge-to-edge 6.2-inch display with a circular cutout on the top left for the front-facing camera. There is a big chin on the bottom that has the Motorola branding. Still, the phone looks pretty nice from the front since there is no big notch.
The Motorola P40 will be an Android One phone, so we can expect it to launch globally. On the rear, there are dual cameras, but they aren’t placed in a circular module as we have seen in all Motorola phones launched in the past couple of years.
The vertical dual camera arrangement is similar to what we see on phones from Huawei, Honor, Asus, Xiaomi etc. The fingerprint scanner is also placed on the rear which means there is no in-display fingerprint scanner or any side-facing one.
The phone has a glass back and a metal frame. One of the most interesting things about this phone is going to be that primary 48MP camera on the rear. Yes, this phone too has a 48MP rear camera, just like the Huawei Nova 4 and the Honor V20. The USB Type-C port is placed on the bottom with the speaker grill, and yes, the 3.5mm headphone jack is still there and is placed on top.
The dimensions are 160.1 x 71.2 x 8.7mm, and there is no information on the specifications or the launch date yet. Stay Tuned.
